Assessing a model of the physiological changes at arousal from sleep.
Grant number: FT100100203 | Funding period: 2011 - 2018
Arousals from sleep are common in the elderly and have adverse consequences. This project will investigate a model of the changes in bodily processes (muscle, brain and cardiovascular activation) that occur when humans awaken from sleep.
